    Appendix carry advice

    I need help finding which appendix holster is right for me.

    I have never carried AIWB but I want to start.

    I currently have a full size MP9. I have been walking around the house with it talked in my belt without a holster just to see if I can conceal it. The grip may be a little long so I may look into an MP9c.

    Anyway. I need some advice on holsters.

    Im interested in kydex. Id like it to ride low on my belt. I would prefer if the belt clip was not on top of the holster, rather to the side.

    Right now the comp tac 2 oclock is all i can find and its right around peak of my price range.

    Thanks
    Derek

    Many rigs are adjustable so you can try and get comfortable and conceal better. Kydex is great, Your pants won't fall down when you draw your weapon.
    sorry I don't have a brand name for you, best just to shop around.

    I can highly recommend Dale Fricke holsters (Dale Fricke Holsters). I've been carrying iawb now for nearly 3 years and I also searched long and hard for a good kydex holster. Now I own 3 of Dale's "Archangel" aiwb holsters. They are very thin, light, durable and it covers my Sig P220 trigger completely and also protects the sights. The back of the holster (the part facing your skin) is very smooth and there are no areas for abrasion. I usually wear mine under my T-shirt or sports shirt with no shirt to separate the holster from my skin. I live in North Texas and it can get quite hot here. I sweat all over the back of the holster.....and it's no problem just by wiping it off in the evening. I really like mine......

    Derek, this patented design of mine is still sold by Bianchi:

    Model 3S *Pistol Pocket® Inside Waistband Holster Bianchi Leather Holsters

    It's big advantage for you is that the angle is infinitely adjustable. Many for sale on eBay. And as thin as Kydex, and easier on your torso!

    Best wishes.

    Cool

    I carry AIWB for several different size and types of handguns.

    Being able to get a good grip on the gun for a secure and rapid draw is of paramount importance.

    I use High Noon Public Secret holsters with the belt clip though you can also get them with straps.

    They have a combat grip along with a full sight track, slide guard and tension adjustment screw.

    A quality 2 ply gunbelt is equaly important to a defensive carry rig.

    I have the comp tac 2 o'clock for my taurus and I love it! The sweat guard keeps most of the water off my metal slide and there's a gap at the top if you have raised sights. Some key things are to keep your belt tight, slide it back and forth because there's a sweet spot you have to find for it to ride comfortably. I think Appendix is my favorite carry position, but you do have to respect the gun.

    I carry my M&P Shield in an AIWB by JM Custom Kydex | What gun?. It carries at the right height, is comfortable and conceals well.

    DO NOT over look the importance of a good quality gun belt... I really like High Noon's products. But if you must go kydex, Crossbreed or CompTac is probably your best bet.

    I use a Public Secret and Mr. Softy from High Noon Holsters. And an Archangel from Dale Fricke.

    I would recommend any of those.

    I use a Dale Fricke Archangel for my Glock 17 at 12:00. I'm a bigger guy, 5'10" 245lbs an it's surprisingly comfortable. I do wear my belt looser AIWB than I do when I carry 4:00.

    For your request of an offset attachment point, look at the Slim AIWB from Garrett Industries. I carry my Archangel more frequently though.

    I decided to pick up a cheap nylon holster that i plan to use over the next few weeks. If i truely love aiwb then i will spend the money on one of the holsters suggested.
